2022 MARS RETROGRADE:08 Scorpio

Hello, Scorpio!

Welcome to your 2022 MARS RETROGRADE Survival Guide!

After almost two years, here we are again, under the effect of a retrograding Mars. With Mars being your ruler, you are more affected than most when it turns retrograde. This means, the next couple of months will be a bit tricky for you, so it’s best to prepare, Pag baliktad si Mars, the energy is slower, and tasks take much longer to accomplish, but no worries, if navigated well, you can emerge from this with more wisdom, unscathed and happier, even!

‘Tis also the season of laziness, with MARS turning backwards, tapos malamig, maulan. It may seem so difficult to get things done, so it might be best to save significant endeavors either before or after this period.  Mars retrograde restricts energy and forward movement, making it difficult to accomplish even the smallest of tasks. Maximum effort usually yields minimum results, kaya nakakawala lalo ng gana. 

Also, with Mars also retrograding in Gemini the sign of communication, data and information, clashes of words and thoughts may lead to a standstill of action, and instead of moving forward, natetengga sa arbitrary discussions. Parang court case na stuck sa courts ng ilang taon na, puro appeal, tapos sa daming ebidensya on both ends, hindi na lalo makausad. Puro pasabog, pagalingan, walang nagbibigay, wala din nananalo.

This is not the time to start something new. Instead, it is a good time to revisit and improve upon existing endeavors. Rather than starting new initiatives, it’s better to improve your current projects. This is a time  to reflect, bago ulit mag full speed ahead.

Taxes Loans Banks  Investments /Joint Resources Other People’s  Money Partner’s Finances ⭑ Mergers ⭑ Transformations ⭑ Regeneration ⭑ Inheritance ⭑ Death/Reminders of mortality ⭑ Renewal ⭑ Secrets Intimacy and Sexuality

Mars moves backwards in your solar 8th house, and issues of intimacy, trust, sex, joint finances might come up for you now, and quite strongly. Are your joint finances/mutual resources in order? May mga utang ba na hirap na bayadan? There is a high tendency to apply for a loans, or max out credit cards for now. In terms of emotional relationships, are there intimacy issues that you are need to address? Arguments regarding these themes may easily pop up for now, and you may find yourself highly defensive, especially if baselessly accused. You may easily come across information that requires discretion, as your investigative skills are on overdrive for now. 

Reminders for this time:

  • For singles, ingatan ang puri. Haha. Yes, you are guarded most of the time already, dear Scorpio, but ngayon kasi, there is a tendency to give-in to the wrong people, so always think twice. Or more pa.

  • Either ikaw or your darling ay wala sa mood to feel intimate, physically or just even emotionally. Hindi pantay. This may cause discomfort in your closest relationships. Partners may feel that you are abrasive even if you do not mean to be. Or pwede din na partner mo ang medyo galit. Remember too that assertion may seem like aggression for now. Alalayan niyo ang isa’t-isa, and encourage better communication!

  • 8th house rules secrets. It is possible that you either reveal one, or one is revealed to you. Don’t be praning ha, this doesn’t necessarily mean the bad kind! This is a good time to discuss what should be discussed. Good communication is always a good thing. Buti na mapag usapan, kesa kimkimin ninyo. This is healthier in the long run.

  • Review your finances, especially joint finances with business partners, even your spouse. Inconsistencies tend to pop up, and its best to discover them now so they can be fixed. Better sooner, than later. Also, your partner might take a few hits in regards to finances/income. Being supportive is very important during this time.

  • Avoid loans or any debt. Overcharging on your credit cards may be easy to do for now, lalo na magpapasko. Miscalculating interests and the ability to pay certain loans too, may be heightened, so it’s best to be prudent financially for now.

  • Thoughts about your exes may fill your mind during this time. One may even make an appearance. The more difficult the break-up, the higher chance of sudden encounters. Wag ka na magulat pag nagkita kayo. Pag nilandi ka, be vigilant! Be ready, just in case!
